Volunteer Social Work as Viewed by a Volunteer

By Ethel C. Meyer

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), February 1, 1914

Voluntary social work does more for the volunteer than any work could have done. It does not only develop her mind and character, but it arouses in her dormant qualities that she unconsciously possessed; it has made her realize that her life is only one among thousands less fortunate and less strong, and that she must be a bulwark of strength to them. It has made her what God intended she should be--a woman, and at heart what every woman is--a mother. In Bulletin of the National Conference of Jewish Charities 1913-1914, Baltimore, Vol.IV:7, ed. Lee F. Frankel.
